Millennium Fellowship Project: Donations for Rehabilitation
This project's main goal would be to raise donations for San Antonio's local establishment, CRIT (Children's Rehabilitation Institute Teleton). In doing so, it would tremendously help offset the cost of the life-changing treatments that are provided for patients who struggle with a wide range of disabilities. The project would consist of several fundraisers, as well as multiple virtual events in order to inform others of how exactly their donation will impact the life of a person in need, and keep the unique institution functional and affordable. The project will also serve to encourage members in the community to become volunteers for CRIT.
To measure the success of this project, volunteers will have to have collectively distributed, at minimum, 100 individual information packets/virtual flyers on how to donate to the institution or become a sponsor for a child. Another quantifiable goal will be to have raised at least $1,000 by the end of the four-month period.
